Pretty Deadly Returns this September with a New Story Arc “The Rat”

Image Comics has announced the return of the critically-acclaimed Pretty Deadly series by Kelly Sue DeConnick and Emma Ríos this September. This new installment in the popular, mythic fantasy series is titled The Rat and will be set during the classic Hollywood golden era. 

This new story arc will be the midway point in the Pretty Deadly series, with the following volumes four and five’s themes already planned out.

In the announcement, DeConnick said:

The Rat tells a story of art, addiction, and loss, against a backdrop of an emerging Hollywood. Arc 4, The Butterfly, will look backward to reveal Alice’s origins, and Arc 5 will push the series to its conclusion in the Great Depression. I am so grateful to have this book, and Emma’s partnership, back at the forefront of my life.

Ríos added:

I’d never do it justice, but The Rat is a love letter dedicated to the fascinating work done by Lotte Reiniger, Svankmajer and the Brothers Quay. The book is steering me from raw violence to subtle horror, and I’m feeling it.

Pretty Deadly: The Rat #1 (Diamond Code JUL190083) will be available on Wednesday, September 4. The final order cutoff for retailers is Monday, August 12. 

Pretty Deadly, Vol. 1: The Shrike (ISBN: 978-1607069621) and Pretty Deadly, Vol. 2: The Bear (ISBN: 978-1632156945) are available now at local comic shops, Amazon, Barnes & Noble, Books-a-Million, Indiebound, and Indigo.
